    Leland or Declan?

    Declan or Leland? Also help with a middle name. Arthur is a BIG family name & would be nice (favorite) to use but wouldn't be terrible not using it.

    Leland Arthur
    Leland Isaac
    Leland Clark
    Leland Dune
    Leland Wade

    Declan Arthur
    Declan Jude
    Declan Boone
    Declan Rhett
    Declan Clark
    Declan Bo
    Declan Wade
    Declan Wyatt

    3 syllable last name, beginning with H. With our daughter we did 2-1-3 & it sounds so nice. But having a hard time finding a 1 syllable middle name for our boy.

    Declan Arthur sounds really nice! I legitimately like it better than your other options. Leland is a tad heavy on the Ls for me.
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    What's the surname's first initial and how many syllables are in it? I'd tread lightly when it comes to using Arthur for either Declan or Leland since it has both two syllables and it sounds kind of monotone for a 2-2-? full name count. Also with a vowel Arthur as a middle initial you don't want it all to spell some (Leland Arthur Tyler or LAT). When it comes to lelanD Dune, you may also look into trying to avoid having the last letter be the same as beginning letter of another part of the name.

    Why don't you look at the One Syllable Middle Names For Boys list?

    I'd avoid the vowels though L-?-H or D-?-H.
